Loved.This.Book. I read it in a day, if that tells you anything! Todd Burpo takes us through the journey of a year of struggles they faced starting with a severely broken leg, kidney stones, a cancer scare then almost losing their four year old son due to doctors missing an appendicitis diagnosis. It wasn’t until a year later that they started finding out that their son wasn’t just severely ill, on the brink of death, but that he actually was so close to death, or even died, and in that time experienced HEAVEN.
Little Colton Burpo started revealing snapshots of his little visit to heaven. The experiences he shared with his parents about heaven were not things that a three/four year old learns in Sunday School. He ‘met’ his Grandpa in heaven, a grandpa he had never met on earth. He knows that he didn’t die because Jesus answered his dad’s prayer directly. He described different scenes that matched scripture perfectly. Some of the stories Colton told his Dad (and his Dad tells us) made the hair on my arms stand up.
Heaven Is For Real got me excited for heaven, encouraged me that my prayers are heard and brought scripture to life through the faith and experience of a little boy. God used an ordinary family, an ordinary boy to share a message that not only is Heaven for real… He is for real! Read this book. You won’t regret it!
